Deal of the Week #1

Posted: 09/10/2011 in Uncategorized

A feature I will be doing is the deal of the week. These games will usually be under $20, and will most likely have been released a few years ago. In each game deal, I will give a few reasons why it’s a deal, who would enjoy it, and I will include a link to Amazon, where you can pick up the game. For my first game deal, I will suggest the Orange Box. The Orange Box, released in October of 2007, is a collection of three games; Half Life 2, Team Fortress 2, and Portal. Now, if you’ve never heard of this, you may be thinking that three games in one package is odd, that they might be plainly bad, blank games. You’d be wrong. Starting with Half Life, anybody who likes the idea of grav guns, this is a game for you. Its gameplay is very unique, and its combat system is one that is still marveled at. Secondly, Team Fortress 2. This game is somewhat simmilar to Quake. It has class-based combat, which most people are farmiliar. However, the thing that is the most unique about this game is… the HATS!! I’m being completely serious. This game has more hats than a six-year-old’s Polly Pocket collection. If there’s a hat, it’s in this game. Of course, there is other things that stand out about this game, but the crown jewel is the hats. Finally, Portal. If you haven’t played this game, do. This is one of the most unique games of all time, and is on my top 5 games. It’s gameplay is unlike any other game. Ever. The game is gripping, quite humorous, and makes you feel like you’re in the year 2096 (not the actual year). The price of the game new is $19.99 on Amazon, and about half that if you buy used.
